Raman spectroscopy is a very powerful technique on account of its intrinsically high molecular specificity, the requirement for minimal or no sample pre-treatment, the ability to measure aqueous samples, the flexibility of sampling configurations, and suitability for automation. Furthermore, Raman technology is a non-destructive, non-contact, label-free, fast, easy to use and robust measurement technique.
However, Raman spectrometry has not traditionally been the optimal technique for analyzing highly fluorescent materials. The PicoRaman spectrometer broadens the application areas of Raman spectroscopy to the next level. Using patented time-gating technology, PicoRaman spectrometer allows for making the most out of Raman spectroscopy, with new applications in the fields of science and industry. PicoRaman is the only commercial Raman spectrometer capable of time-resolved measurements.
Fluorescence emission is seen as the main challenge in Raman spectroscopy. The patented Timegated® technology solves this problem. PicoRaman has sub-nanosecond pulsed excitation and a time-resolved single-photon counting detector, enabling effective and real fluorescence rejection making both quantitative and qualitative analyses more accurate and reliable. Spectral analysis becomes more specific and precise as fluorescence is no longer a limitation.
PicoRaman opens up new possibilities for research and development e.g. in catalysis, metallurgy and combustion studies. It is the only commercial Raman spectrometer using time-resolved technology, providing data on Raman scattering and time-resolved fluorescence. The advantages of conventional Raman spectroscopy are also available with PicoRaman. Additionally, PicoRaman is immune to ambient light, and it enables measurements in high temperatures without having to account for fluorescence. Efficient data acquisition is accessible for a wider range of applications than before.
Aside from data on Raman scattering, PicoRaman also provides time-resolved information on fluorescence emission decay. The time-gating technology enabling this has its first commercial application in the PicoRaman instrument.
PicoRaman consists of a spectrometer, laser, sampling optics, PC with NI I/O card and software. The instrument is compact sized, fits easily on a laboratory table and it is easy to transport to a sample collection site. Timegate experts will help you with choosing the right measurement probe for your research purposes.
PicoRaman spectrometer allows for analysis of a wide range of compounds in various physicochemical environments and temperatures. PicoRaman uses patented Raman technology, providing data on Raman scattering and time-resolved fluorescence.
Time-resolved Raman spectroscopy has not been commercially available until now. PicoRaman is the new tool for accurate analysis for mining industry, fundamental chemical research, pharmaceutical settings, process analytical technology (PAT) and life sciences. PicoRaman instrument helps you to improve your production quality and reliability.
